Dreaming of getting pregnant again after having one child or two children? or maybe you have never conceived before and you are trying harder
but it seems your efforts are in vain? I can resonate with your feeling and that is why I put this up for you.
I know it is very difficult to avoid some certain foods and things you do naturally,
but it is worth giving it up when trying to conceive. Yes, it was difficult for me too to give up my tuna fish when I was trying to conceive too and it was worth it I must confess.

There's this inscription written on cigarette packets that scare the hell out of me while growing up
“Smokers are liable to die young” although this is not our concentration at the moment
but I believe and studies have also shown that smoking cigarettes are
probably one of the main causes of adverse outcomes for babies.
According to statistics, it takes longer for smokers to conceive and smoking makes a
woman's eggs more prone to genetic abnormalities. These are:
Babies are born prematurely, too small, or they die before they can be born at all.

Yes, When you smoke during pregnancy, that toxic brew gets into your bloodstream, The only source of oxygen and nutrients for your baby.
Oh my God! Please quit now before getting pregnant.
Tobacco also reduces the number and quality of sperm in a male. This means your husband has to quit smoking to avoid low sperm count.
#2. Large amount of caffeine
It is safer to consume 200 to 300 milligrams (mg) of caffeine daily while trying to conceive. — that's about one to two eight-ounce cups — per day.
Anything more than that could be harmful to your baby. If you want to have a healthy and easy pregnancy journey then you need to consider this.
I know what I was doing when I gave up that cup of coffee and
I believe you can do it too, only if you make up your mind to.
caffeine interferes with your ability to absorb iron, it can dehydrate you and if taken in high doses it can increase miscarriage and preterm birth risk, so it's worth cutting back now.
#3. Fish with mercury
Although adding fish to your pregnancy diet is highly recommended and
studies have shown that fish provide an array of nutrients that are important for your baby's early development.
The key nutrients are two omega-3 fatty acids – DHA and EPA – that are difficult to find in other foods. You still need to be careful when choosing the type of fish you eat.
Some fish are higher in mercury than others—most notably marlin, orange roughy, tilefish, swordfish, shark, king mackerel, ahi and bigeye tuna.
On the other hand, you've probably heard that fish contain contaminants such as mercury, which can harm a baby's developing brain and nervous system.
High levels of mercury in the blood have been linked to fertility issues in both men and women. Plus, mercury can stay in your system for a year or more.
I know you now know the types of fish to avoid.
Yes, stress is considered as one of the main causes of inability to conceive. It literally interfers with conception. I remembered few friends telling me to relax my mind and that
I should stop thinking about getting pregnant because it will happen when I least expected.
This can sometimes be devasting but when trying to conceive you have to put your mind at peace.
Avoid getting yourself stressed up because intense stress can cause damage on your reproductive system and having trouble getting pregnant can cause quite a bit of stress!
So if you feel that your stress levels might be affecting your health and your ability to conceive quickly visit your gynaecologist.
#5. Fast foods
Eating right is essential. So if you always eat out try cutting down on that. It is better to cook your food yourself, that way you are sure that you are taking in the necessary nutrients needed for quicker conception. Besides, If your body's in a healthy state you're more likely to conceive easily.
The other important reason to say no to the fries you eat at the fast food corner
is that you don't even know how long the oil has been used and this may trigger some health issues when constantly consumed.
